CNN
VideoBrief A wave of new technology, embedded in football helmets, aims to measure the force of on-field collisions and send alerts when a player's health may be in danger. Seeing an opportunity, manufacturers are producing a growing list of products marketed as "head impact sensors," small devices that fit inside the helmet and trigger a warning when a player sustains an especially hard blow.

But if you walk inside 18,000-seat Eagle Stadium these days, it's impossible to miss the countless cracks, some as wide as three-quarters of an inch, lining the concourse that have made the stadium unfit for public assembly.

The Gazette
Recently, The Shipley School in Pennsylvania instituted a "no heading" policy that prohibits middle school players (sixth through eighth grade) from heading full-size balls during practices and discourages them from heading in games.
